MSN News: Embattled DNC Asks All Staffers For Resignation Letters
Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez has launched a major reshuffling of the party's organization that has been stung by recent crisis — and the DNC has requested the resignation letters of all current staffers be submitted by next month. Party staff routinely see major turnover with a new boss and staffers were alerted earlier to expect such a move. However, the mass resignation letters will give Perez a chance to completely remake the DNC's headquarters from scratch.
Some of the staffers he will eventually rehire and keep. Some will go out the door.
Perez has been on a listening tour meeting small groups of Democrats across the country before making any big moves. On one of his stops in Michigan he told NBC News, "What we're trying to do is culture change. We're repairing a plane at 20,000 feet. You can't land the plane, shut it down, and close it until further notice."
"If your goal is you have to please everyone then you end up pleasing no one," he added.
While Perez is remaking the DNC, Democrats at the grass roots level have been active in protests and signing up to run for local, state and federal offices. The party that emerges from this activism will choose their future leaders. The DNC will help facilitate the process, but for now our future leaders may not be on anyone's radar screens.
The activists need to have a strong vision about what the party and government should stand for. We cannot make the mistake of just being anti-Trump...a "Party of No" to replace the Republican "Party of No".
